2002 Yamaha Warrior
Twist the wrist and fall in love
This bike is a torque monster. It loves the curves, and until you scrape pegs, you haven't really let it do its job. It is truly a great ride in stock form.
When I first bought it, there wasn't much in the way of after-market parts, but a lot of manufacturers are getting on board with it. There are forums out there just for the Warrior, with a lot of these riders reinventing the bike over and over again. It is easy to modify, so hands on type of people can change the bike to their personal taste easy.
Now the few things to address.
The stock seat is not for two, along with the foot pegs for the passenger.
After market seats are from $250 to $1000, depending on the style and types of backrests. Foot peg extensions are also easy to come by.
The "water heater" exhaust.
I know of a few that really like the stock exhaust, personally it was the first thing I changed. Most all bike exhaust makers offer something for this bike as an alternative.

By the way these don't apply to all models, check your VIN# with Star and see if your year is involved.
There has been a few, I haven't had any problems, doesn't mean someone else didn't. Either way they are covered by Star with nothing out of your pocket, so get them done.. It's not worth the chance of damaging your bike or you.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
